Default Optical CD drive

I have an optical cd/dvd drive on my laptop and I have a dvd camcorder that uses mini discs and I was curious if there was any way that I can put the mini disc in my optical cd/dvd drive.

it's because both people are not more concise with what they said

laptop most likely has a slot load vs a tray load...tray loading drives can accept the mini discs (generally).

Your best bet is just to get something like this:
Logitec's portable burner slot loads 8cm discs: an industry first? - Engadget
or:
Newegg.com - ILY 2-Tone 40X CD-R 24X CD-RW 40X CD-ROM USB 2.0 External CD Drive with Multi-Card Reader Model MB600 - Retail

just make sure to check if it can accept the mini...as I have done already for you

it may take the disk, what format is the disk written in ? the pc may not be able to read the disk

does the optical drive tray have a smaller concentric depression in it that the dvd disk will drop into ?
